Default Oak

I've always used hickory but have a line on some good oak. Choice between red or white. Looking for input.

I've been using red oak recently, it's mild and I like it.

I've had great success with both. In my opinion Red is a little milder.

Pin Oak I's also known as Swamp Oak since it tends to grow in wt environments. I've never tried it for smoking.

Pin oak and 5 others have the local name "swamp oak" depending on where you live, just as an FYI here's a link that names all of them-

I prefer white oak, haven't had much luck with red oak., All the red that I have gotten was to resinous for my taste.

Either one is good. I prefer white oak but would never turn down any red.
